The Collectivist Socialists of Taronix is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Hathte with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.944 billion Taronixians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sovha. The average income tax rate is 69%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
The study of medicine is popular throughout Taronix, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, elections are outlawed and a hairstylist has recently received a government appointment, and rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Taronix's national animal is the Scinos, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is The Cult Of The Tomato, and its currency is the Iter.
